Reminds me of a joke I heard when I was young...

This guy eats a big pot of beans, then goes out on his first date with a girl. He's overcome with gas pressure so he excuses himself to the piano in the corner of the room and says "I'm going to play something for you" and starts banging out these loud runs and chords hoping they'll cover his farting.

After he feels relieved he stops playing.

His date asks "What do you call that piece?"

"Uhh, I call it 'The Night Storm.' Did you like it?

"Well, yeah, except for that section where lightning struck the shit-house."
One more clone of George Winston (like Ludovico Einaudi, for instance). In fact all try to copy Satie.   
If my mom or my grandma would be still alive, I'm sure they would love me to play like this... ahhhhhh yeah, but I wouldn't make an album out of it.... and I wouldnt expect it on RP except as an interlude.. while I go ... mm make a coffee... pass.
Awesome.......
I rarely comment, but find myself driven to comment on this piece.  I think it's great!

It's amazing how simple the melody is, yet how much of a musical journey it took me on when I heard it. 

Sometimes music gets tied up in its complexity and while being sophisticated, it loses it's sole purpose of taking the listener on a journey.  I think the minimalisitic style of this piece actually enhances the journey that it takes the listener on.  Amazing!

Thanks RP for featuring this artist's work and I look forward to hearing more.

This makes me ask myself how many versions of Philip Glass we need? Turns out it's three. PG, Ludovico Einaudi, and this guy.

Actually I like this fellow a little better, but I'm still bored.
Thank you for helping me NOT be the only guy complaining about this sort of thing. This is about as sophisticated as Three Blind Mice. Add Apocalyptica to the list?

Did like that this is was somewhat short - because of the repetitivity.

Me first?
Don't think that has happened before.
Who hoo!

Reminds me of Ludvico Enaudi (sp).
